We are numbers watchers here at Gambling911.com, and there are a few things we are picking up on the Rockets-Lakers game that offer only the slightest hint as to what the sportsbooks may be thinking here.   The line has been oddly stable at LA -5.5.

The oddsmakers have moved this one briefly to -6 before shifting the line back down to -5.5.  That would be Pinnacle, for a total of two long minutes Sunday morning. 

The recreational books have held at -5.5 as well.  Should we see the books make any move to -5, consider a bet on Houston at +5 or +5.5.

The key here is that nearly 65% of the spread action is on Los Angeles.

A look at the Sagarin Ratings suggests this one should have a line of -1 Lakers on a neutral court.  LA is playing in Orlando but with Staples Center crowd noise being pumped in.  Perhaps that helps boost the line to -2 to -2.5, but not much more. 

We will pull the trigger if any notable book does move the line down to -5 and we happen to catch it.  This tells us the books have enough of an opinion that Houston will cover here as the move to -5 simply bloats the action even more on LA.

Update: Jazz Sports moved to the -5 at 4:08 pm and was still holding 45 minutes later.  Jazz of course is pretty sharp.

Gambling911.com Pick Houston Rockets @ +5.5

Our overall reord in the NBA this season is 69-42 (62%).
